help with SLIGE

Recommended Posts

UM, I dont know if this is the right forum for this, if it isnt pleas delete this thread. As the titile suggests, I have a program known as SLIGE that I use for warmup or just for practice. Anyway, I cant get the program to generate a level for Doom2 rather then the original Doom. When I run the EXE it just appears and then disappears. Is there something that I am doing wrong in this process.

it's been awhile, but I think you have only generated the map... you haven't built the nodes yet.
read the documentation. gl.

do you directly run it from windows or do you use the command prompt?
because it is easier with the command prompt since it won't disapear after it is finished with slige

By default, Slidge generates a level for DOOM 1 (i.e. E1M1 format). In order to force Slidge to create a DOOM 2 map, you must use the "-doom2" command line parameter (i.e. "SLIDGE -doom2"). After generating the level (default filename is SLIDGE.OUT) it then must have it's nodes built via BSP.

P.S. All of the Slidge command line parameters (check Slidge's included readme file for detailed explainations of them):

-rooms [n]
-seed [nnnnnn]
-outfile [filename.ext]
-restrict [012C]
-ExMx
-MAPxx
-doom1
-doom2
-levels <x>
-minlight <x>
-music
-macho <nn>
-noslinfo
-nocustom
-cwad
-arena
-nulls
-nosemo
-biwe
-bimo
-bimo!

OK folks, here is a complete list of all of the command line parameters for SLIGE (Build 485). I've been meaning to type this up for quite some time now, as I really DETEST how jumbled up that Slige's readme file is.

FYI, some of these are not even documented in Slige's readme file, but are actually valid command line parameters that are contained in the source code (as well as the compiled EXE). 'Nuther words, this is ALL of 'em -:)

Yer welcome! -:)

Yep yep, the Final DOOM EXEs support up to 35 levels for DOOM 2, as well as direct support for all of the other previously released versions of DOOM (regular DOOM 2, DOOM, and Ultimate DOOM).

This thread contains a discussion of maps33-35 (ignore the "map30 secret" discussion - the later posts by fraggle, Quasar and Graf contain the real meat). It's more a curiosity than a usable feature.
